In a pinch, there is a substitute common tool that you can use but I can't find the reference with a search.

If I find it first, I'll post it here.

Found it! You can use a 5mm socket with an extension or a deep socket. The factory tool is hex female socket, but the metric standard 5mm socket (1/4" drive) will work.

I take it yours is missing and/or broken from your tool kit inside the spare tire in your front trunk? I had to get my replacement directly from the dealer. I would recommend you call Jeff at Sunset Porsche (link on this site - JeffClark@sunsetimports.com). He'll get you a quote and you can go from there. When I bought my replacement tool it was very inexpensive...that was a few years ago though.

All the best,

That's even better than buying the tool!

Good work Maurice.

Crazyness.

I've never even removed the "tool" from the toolkit. Just a 5mm socket.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but does anyone know if the 5mm socket works for the MY02 C4S with the xenon headlights? I don't have one long enough and would like to confirm before I order one

The socket size is the same for all headlights.
